of personal property after Dec for the payment of axes and says he thinks that I nm rather fast and goes on to quote the amended tion of the law in regard to the alty after January 1st Now the tlon quoted by Philo has nothing whatever to do with the section re- quiring the seizing of property If will read law he will find that it ment of Collections in December without any penalty and after Jan 1st with a penalty of five per cent a month for two months and two per cent a month thereafter I should not have claimed your valuable space to reply to Philo were it nol that his article may mislead
